With this revolutionary CEREC technology, dental crowns, veneers, onlays and inlays can be created and attached in a single office visit.
For over 20 years, dentists have had the option of using a ceramic restoration machine, referred to as CEREC, for the manufacturing of their patients' dental crowns in the office. Although a substantial investment for a dental practice, the CEREC actually can reduce dental expenses and reduce office visits by eliminating the use of a dental laboratory to fabricate dental crowns.
Living in the fast-paced community of Jasper, Texas, Dr. Koch, of Family & Implant Dental Care, understood the many time commitments of his dental patients and therefore, purchased the CEREC machine to expedite the dental crown manufacturing process. However, faster production does not mean lesser quality. The use of 3-D photography and CAD/CAM technology makes dental crowns that are durable and properly contoured to fit your tooth.
Yes, dentistry has entered the virtual world of restoration. Dr. Koch can design a virtual restoration, such as dental crowns, onlays, inlays, or bridges from an optical impression taken by CEREC. No longer necessary are the days of taking an impression of the mouth with plaster or wax and sending it off to the dental lab. An in-house milling unit reads the optical impression and creates the restorative dental crown, most times, in thirty minutes or less in the office.
In addition to a reduction in the time Dr. Koch needs to perform the dental crown treatment, CEREC also creates dental crowns that fit perfectly and look excellent. Made out of biocompatible, metal-free material, CEREC dental crowns last for years. A truly remarkable addition to Family & Implant Dental Care services, CEREC makes dental crown treatment a one-visit treatment because we value our patients and their time.
